Samsung Nexus 10 versus Apple iPad: Which is right for you?

When it comes to 10-inch tablets, most consumers certainly think of iPad as the most powerful option out there. Sure, there are other high-end 10-inch tablets that are running on Android or Windows 8/RT, but they don't have the display power of the Retina and probably aren't as cutting-edge in processing and graphics as the newest 4th generation Apple iPad. This dynamic is now crashing down thanks to the newly announced Samsung Nexus 10.

What Should You Buy? Microsoft Surface RT vs. Apple iPad 4

Apple Defends the $329 Price Tag of the iPad Mini

The iPad Mini is here but some of us are finding it hard to get all that excited when similar tablets cost nearly $100 less. For $199 you can get the Nexus 7, sure it has a smaller screen but it also has a better resolution. You can even get a slightly weaker 7-inch Kindle Fire for just $169. That makes the starting price of $329 just a little hard to swallow.

Apple may exchange your brand new iPad 3 with new 4th-gen model

Apple Announces the 4th Generation iPad

New Apple Patent Allows Internal Components to “Disappear”

The idea of hiding certain software components on a mobile device isn't exactly new. Many modern Android devices utilize buttons that are completely within the software.

In traditional Apple fashion, it takes an idea we've already seen and puts a twist on it.
